Course content

Geography research at Bangor covers both human and physically aligned work, with a strong interdisciplinarity and applied focus, addressing policy issues and conducting action research with stakeholder groups.

We work in a range of contexts internationally, studying processes and interactions at a range of scales – from global to regional, through to site-specific cases.

Topics covered encompass:

  • Rural land-use change and controversies (e.g. Brexit & rewilding)
  • Sustainable communities, tourism and eco-developments (e.g. food festivals & nature-based approaches)
  • Human-nature relations and environmental governance (e.g. payments for ecosystem services & social forestry)
  • Food values, justice and poverty (e.g. food banks & redistribution networks)
  • Participatory approaches, citizen science and knowledge-politics (from mobile based surveys to post-truth debates)
  • Long-term river response to environmental change
  • Geoarchaeology of alluvial environments
  • Process geomorphology
  • Reconstruction of terrestrial glacial environments
  • Catchment Science and Modelling
  • Alluvial Geochemistry and impact of PHEs on river systems
